From a Howard Hawks western:


Mountain Man:.... ."I remember once here being a trapper named Parker. He run smack into a big grizzly bear. The bear sure made a mess out of Parker before we killed it. Ripped one of his ears clear off. But this child just happened to have a needle and some of this here deer sinew, just like we got here. Yeah, while his ear was still hot, I picked it up and sewed it back on his head. And it growed most as good as ever....


(later)...I said growed as good as ever. Not hardly. It seems I sewed Parker's ear on backwards. Yeah, he hated me until the day he died. On accunt of every time he'd hear a rattlesnake, he'd turn the wrong direction and step smack into it !..."

Here's one: "I must quit marrying men who feel inferior to me. Somewhere there must be a man who could be my husband and not feel inferior. I need a superior inferior man." (But this was said by an actress about herself, and not from a film.)

Thanks, lana. Had to track this one down. Movie dialogue.


"Well, ______, from this day henceforth, it seems you must be a stranger to one of your parents....Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. _______, and I will never see you again if you do."


"Thanks, Papa."

Diana: Chris, when I look into your eyes, I don't see myself there.


Chris: Oh, you must be a little blind.


Diana: I see horizons, ranges of uncrossed mountains, the unknown. You belong to that, Chris, the way an eagle belongs to the sky.


Movie ?

(Same speaker as in the original quote, to his woman companion.)


"You're beautiful, and I love you. I sleep with a lot of women; I make love to you. The single most important person in my life... (Smashes a Coke bottle on her face, then turns and faces his flunkey.) "Get her out of here!" (Turns to the P.I.) "Now that's someone I love! And you I don't even like! You have an assignment, cheapie. Find my money!"
